Rafael Nadal’s fourth-round US Open misfortune has opened the entryway for Carlos Alcaraz or Casper Ruud to leave New York as the No. 1 player in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings.
Alcaraz or Ruud should make the last to get an opportunity of arriving at the zenith of men’s tennis. On the off chance that neither does as such, Nadal will get back to World No. 1. Assuming Alcaraz and Ruud meet in the title match, the champ will bring back home the prize and the best position.
The competition started with five players fighting for World No. 1: Nadal, Alcaraz, Ruud, Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Nadal, Medvedev and Tsitsipas neglected to arrive at the quarter-finals. Alcaraz faces Marin Cilic in the fourth round on Monday night.

Alcaraz and Ruud both have a potential chance to impact the world forever at Flushing Meadows.
In the event that Alcaraz moves to World No. 1, at 19 years, four months he will end up being the most youthful player to hold the best position in Pepperstone ATP Rankings history (starting around 1973). The ongoing record is held by Lleyton Hewitt, who became World No. 1 at 20 years, nine months.
Ruud, who started the US Open at No. 7 in the Pepperstone ATP Rankings, is attempting to turn into the principal Norwegian to arrive at the zenith of men’s tennis. He ultimately depends on No. 4 in the Pepperstone ATP Live Rankings.
In the event that neither Alcaraz or Ruud make the last, Nadal will get back to World No. 1 interestingly since 4 November 2019 when he held it for a considerable length of time until 2 February 2020. It would be the Spaniard’s 10th spell on the game.
